Description by OLDIES.com:
Here is the definitive history of pornographic films from silent-era sex on the bumper of a Model T Ford to Bettie Page gyrating in Technicolor - from soft-core to hard-core & anything goes - Taboo - The Beginning of Erotic Cinema is the quintessential collection of vintage erotica, from its very beginning to its unforeseeable end.
The great myth of erotic films is that their creation came about in the 1970's, with stars like John Holmes and films like Debbie Does Dallas, but nothing could be further from the truth. As soon as moving cameras were invented, people began using them to make erotic films- from as early as the 1920's! Here is a collection of these early erotic films- from soft-core to hard-core, from whips and leather to threesomes and more.
Although most of these short films were made 70 or even 80 years ago, these definitely aren't your grandmother's types of movies.
